Swandel.. this is not a blah blah de blah and saying we will have control over all design aspects..... but somehow leaves out that none of that has been demanded to be included in any agreement up to this point and that he is just guessing.

Mr nordman. YOU are the backwards one. YOU are the one who should have demanded it goes back for more details instead of waiting for the business to say they need more time.

Was that Nordman or Swandel that said that?

Wow, I can't believe Swandel, what a moron, this debate has really engaged Winnipeggers and shown that we have some real buffoons on our city council, yes thats you Swandel, Vandal, Paula.

Just caught up on Free Press live blog. Swandel is coming across as a spoiled and petulant child not getting his way. Dude needs to LISTEN to the tidal-wave of opposition to this proposal.

hmm... Vandals motion might fail as well....

which leads back to an actual vote on the water park.

Watching this right now. PLEASE do the right thing, councilmen and women, and at least vote to delay this project, or vote it down altogether. LISTEN to the citizens, they are speaking loud and clear.

ha! Eadie the most leftist of lefties... and he is the one arguing for a competitive bidding process that is fair for all developers.

Although I'm glad Smith is for the delay, he is on the older side and hopefully he will retire after this.

interesting that two of the three who voted against the vandal defer motion were voting against it because they say that the whole thing should just be outright voted down, no wasting people's time.

Kudos to Global. The free press live blog just did not do that debate justice.

Did they have to wake Smith up to speak? He was nodding off earlier...

Here is what I want: issue a new RFP. Let the developer world present their view. AND more money. Then run it by Winnipeggers.

I suspect a discount hotel and water park won't be the winning bid.

Eh...I like the idea of the waterpark...even at the forks wouldn't be bad...but i don't like THIS plan for it.

I'm not sure what Sammy was crying about for parking though. I thought part of the plan was to have a multi-level parkade included? Or was that something I misheard?

My biggest concern about a monumental waterpark though...is that it is 100% privately financed. There should be NO government funding going into it. I can understand some tax credits/incentives due to the temporary labour influx of construction...perhaps a 7-year forgiveness on property taxes...but there should be no actual funds handed to the developer/management company.

If there is truly a commercial demand for a waterpark in winnipeg...it should be funded by the for-profit entities that want to make some money. And you can bet there will STILL be free passes handed out like candy...just look at how many free passes are given out by movie theatres, charity donations by stores like walmart, and special discounts for non-profits by most EVERY business out there.

As far as Sammy goes...it's my opinion that he should buy up the lots behind the goldeyes stadium and build a couple of parkades. then he has parking, and a new revenue stream to boot.

Sammy never started crying until there was massive public backlash and all of a sudden (in less then 24 hours from one statement to the next) "he was advised that for legal reasons he should recuse himself"

Wow, that idiot Swandel just said something along the lines of the council should show respect to Canalta and give them time to present their plans, renederings etc.

So, Swandel sits on EPC, votes this thing to move forward for a fast approval in council and when it doesn't happen he says we need to respect Canalta, the company that is taking 7 million of taxpayer moeny??

From Kives twitter: Havixbeck said she believes Canalta deal is dead. Said company won't want to spend $200K on designs, plans & consultations.

I see, so we were supposed to just take their word for it that it would all be okie dokie?
